a river in southern Africa, in Angola, forming part of its border with Namibia. It is 945 km long and drains an area of more than 100,000 sq km. Rising in the Bié Plateau, in its upper reaches it flows through rocky canyons, forming rapids and waterfalls.

Although it is deep during the summer rainy season, it becomes shallow during the dry winters.
